A Simply Shocking and Sweet Surprise!

I found out on Saturday that Supermommy or Not nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award!  I’m so deeply touched.  I’m very new to this blogging corner of the world.  I’ve always read them but it took me a long time to get the courage to set up my own blog and start writing content.  That anyone would think my beginning blog award-worthy?  Wow.  Thank you, Supermommy or Not!   Please go check out her blog!  She also has a children’s boutique with the cutest clothing (I think I know what I’m getting some nieces and nephews for Christmas now.).  

As part of this nomination, I am required to share 7 random facts about myself as well as nominate 15 other blogs for this wonderful award.  The first task will be hard as I’m not really a share things about myself kind of person (I know…I know…Why on Earth do I have a blog if I don’t like to share things?). 

7 Random Things You Never Wanted to Know:

  1. Coconut Meringue Pie is my favorite dessert.  I like it better than chocolate.  No one else in this household likes coconut so I don’t get my favorite dessert very often.  However, I get plenty of desserts that are forever attached to my middle and my thighs.

  2. I worked as a tour guide at the Winston Churchill Memorial on the campus of Westminster College in Fulton, MO for a college semester.  I wasn’t very good at it.  I still have my name tag.

  3. Automatic car washes terrify me and I refuse to drive through them.  The boys find this both hilarious and disappointing.  I do go to the car wash every now and then but I wash my car in the stalls. 

  4. I have lived in the same local area my entire life and I actually love it here (most of the time).  I love to travel but do not have many chances to do so.

  5. Family research fascinates me and has become my hobby since I can’t make amazing crafts, music (you do NOT want me to sing), or enjoying cooking and baking all that much.   I’ve also become in contact with 3 distant cousins through my research.

  6. When I was in either Kindergarten or maybe it was 1st Grade, I didn’t hear the bus driver call my name and missed my stop.  I rode the bus all the way to the end of the route.   I don’t remember much about it except the bus driver yelled, I cried, and my aunt from Florida was here for a visit.  I’m sure someone; somewhere heard an earful from my mother.  We’d have been local celebrities had it happened in this era (Oh dear, does that mean I went to school in a different era?) back then it didn’t even make the local news plus I probably had to accept responsibility for not paying attention.  Times have changed.

  7. I don’t like cold fruit.  Cold fruit salad is okay but if I’m going to eat a grape or an apple, it needs to be room temperature.  Oh, and I hate bananas.

Hopefully, you’ll be able to sleep tonight now that you know my fruit preferences.   Now it’s time (no rotten tomatoes here!) to nominate 15 of my favorite blogs.  I can’t count so I stopped at 12.  That should leave you more time to go check out these great blogs! :

  1. This Happy Mom

  2. Organized Island

  3. Organising Queen

  4. An Extraordinary Day

  5. The Fresh Plate

  6. A Mother’s Oath

  7. Ready.Set.Simplify.

  8. BerryMorins Bits and Tips

  9. Overcoming Busy

  10. The How to Make Money Online Mom

    Awww, you’re so sweet! BTW, car washes terrify me too. I have been an official car owner for 6 years now and I have never washed my vehicles. Ever. When Hubby complains, I tell him that I’m just waiting for God to wash my car for me aka downpour. Lol

    Hi Jean!
    It is so kind of you to nominate me for the Versatile Blog Award. Truly. Thank you.
    Is Super Mommy the originator? Or do you know where it originates from?
    Your Seven Things. I too have a strong dislike for the car wash. It sort of freaks me out!!! And I too much prefer my fruit to be room temperature. My water too! Haha!
    Be blessed!!

      I’m also quite relieved to hear that it’s not just me with the carwash concerns and room temperture fruit preferences!
